The year 7, 8, 9 and 10 rowers had qualified for the Greater Manchester County Finals as Trafford Champions in December.
In this competition, which consisted of teams of 4, they were now rowing against schools from all over the County. There were two events : and individual competition where each girls rowed for a certain length of time and a team relay where the team had to row a total of 8 minutes, making sure that every rower took part. Results were decided on how many metres they rowed.

The girls produced some very good results against some strong opposition. In the team event they narrowly missed out on a bronze medal by 0.4 of a metre!!!
Well done to Kirsten, Selin, Phoebe and Eloise.
The school results were amazing, particularly as most of the girls do not take rowing seriously. They are just very fit athletes transferring their skills to another sport. Some of the schools that were in the competition have rowing machines at school and rowing is part of their school PE curriculum.
The girls were amazing and some great team work and support for each other was in evidence throughout the competition.
Well done to everyone who took part.
